This year, Willie released an album of standards.
To honor his legacy, I’m doing a two-day post on the great WN. Today, he’s singing cover songs. Tomorrow, folks will be covering him! Sit back, and enjoy a ton of cover songs!
Let’s start with…The Allman Brothers!
Across the Borderline, by Freddie Fender, is one of my all-time favorite Willie covers.
All of Me, that old classic…
Always On My Mind is really a BJ Thomas tune, but everyone thinks it’s Willie because his version is so great.
Willie does Roy Acuff’s Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain. Great song.
Funny How Time Slips Away…
Willie does Waits!
And finally…ZZ Top!!!
